It’s been a while since we looked at what celebrities were up to. Why do we care? It’s not that I’m obsessed with celebrities, but unfortunately they live lives that people idolize, that they focus on and that effect us– if not now, in the future. They are, in some way, a public representation of what’s going on in the hearts and lives of people and they show us (by the reactions of the media, etc.) just how far we are from the truth. I understand that some of you might not be interested, but for others, we’ll play a little catch up and see what’s going on.
So, it looks like Britney’s trying to gain some more attention– possibly trying to get herself in a position for a Madonna style comeback. Far from the squeaky clean and innocent image, soon be be ex-Mrs. Federline filed for divorce at the best possible moment, and has taken up some less than ideal practices.
First, she started hanging out with socialites like Paris Hilton– who’s claim to fame is an Internet video I’m pretty sure you don’t want to see and a TV show mocking how out of touch with common people she is. Next, she’s appearing in all sorts of places sans underwear. Letting herself be photographed and displayed all over the Internet. Multiple days in a row. It would seem that if this were an accident she would have reconsidered it the next day.
Britney, do your kids and all of us a favor– get back with your husband, put on some panties, and be the person you claimed to your fans you were instead of the person you appear to really be.
So guess who’s come out and is sounding like a Christian? That’s right, Sylvester Stallone is saying things like, “No matter what, you can overcome your past,” he said. “With help, if you look to God, you can overcome your past and be reborn.”
Your guess is as good as mine as to what this really means. Considering the types of movies that he has made and the things that they tend to glorify, one wonders what the rating on a movie that’s supposed to be a symbol of a struggle with self and being reborn should get. Focus on the Family certainly thinks it’s something– including devotional material! Frankly, I would have to talk to the man to really find out. The statements in this article are too vague for me.
Jennifer Willbanks, you’ll recall, was the real life runaway bride. She made it to New Mexico before they figured out who she was and sent her home.
It was at that point that they decided that the bride to be and groom to be would reconcile, seek help, and after she paid her debt to society they would still marry– after all, she still loved him. Or so we thought.
She’s seeking $500,000. Part of the money of the house they both bought, some of the royalties for selling the story, and compensation for some things of hers she believes that she has.
Of course, the guy disagrees and they’re trying to sort it out. Did anyone really think this was going to work out? The good news is that this was reconciled before the wedding instead of after!
